Priyanka Chopra to produce an Assamese film

Priyanka Chopra has become a global icon after successfully working in Bollywood and Hollywood. She is one of the A-Listers to produce regional movies. After producing Marathi, Punjabi and Sikkimese films, Priyanka Chopra is now venturing into Assamese project. Titled Bhoga Khirikee (Broken Window), the film is being helmed by Jahnu Barua.

A source close to the development told a leading Indian tabloid, “The film revolves around a female protagonist, whose life is in turmoil due to the ideological clash among the three men in her life – her father, her husband and a stranger. Priyanka loved the script and instantly agreed to back the project.”

“Though the primary photography has been wrapped up, a chunk of the patch work is yet to be done. With Priyanka’s access as the brand ambassador of the state, it will be easier for the crew to procure permissions to shoot in locations off-limits otherwise,” added the source.

Priyanka’s mother Dr Madhu Chopra confirmed the news by stating, “The north-eastern states are the most under-represented in our country. We, as a production house, endeavour to showcase Bhoga Khirikee for the world to see.”

Previously, in an interview, Dr Madhu Chopra had said, “Priyanka has chosen to work with the best in the region and make her regional films commercially viable with a good production plan. She is passionate about these projects and will never lend her name to something just for the sake of it.”

Meanwhile, Priyanka Chopra, who is currently shooting for American TV series Quantico season 3 has two Hollywood projects in her kitty, namely; A Kid Like Jake and Isn’t It Romantic.
